Risky Business

Journalists are always being put in dangerous situations. Seeking out the most current news can often leave them in foreign countries in times of war.

Two American journalists have recently gone missing while vacationing in Lebanon. Working for Amman-based paper the Jordan Times, the journalists have not been heard from since October 1. 

The two journalists were in a part of Lebanese that was known for having violent acts against Americans. These violent acts were supposed to be even more prevalent during the first part of October. 

Taylor Luck one of the reporter's gone missing has not used his credit card since October 1. This seems like a grim reminder of how dangerous the journalism profession can be. Sometimes risking your life for the opportunity to report the most newsworthy story.
